    What happened in insert boot disk just after installation has done ?


    HereHow to Move Users Profile Folder to another Location in Windows 10

    In "Windows 10, clean install“ Block, third paragraph

    Now turn off the PC. Insert the imaging boot disk and reboot from it, create a system image. As Windows is quite barebone at the moment it only takes a few minutes.


    I can't understand it.

    Does boot disk create another win10 system?And why it will only take a few minutes?What's the meaning of this step?

    Hi RochustCN, I am the author of that tutorial.

    Here's the full quote of what you are referring to:

    Note   Note
    Windows 10, clean install:

    Before starting the installation, create a boot disk for your chosen imaging program. I use Macrium Free, see the tutorial at our sister site the Seven Forums.

    When installation has done the last reboot you will arrive to settings dialog (screenshot from this tutorial):


    Now turn off the PC. Insert the imaging boot disk and reboot from it, create a system image. As Windows is quite barebone at the moment it only takes a few minutes.

    When the image has been created, remove the imaging boot disk and boot the PC normally. It will resume the setup from the above shown settings dialog. You can now reboot to Audit Mode as told in this tutorial and use Sysprep to relocate the Users folder. Before sysprepping save a copy of your answer file to an external drive.

    If the sysprep fails, it is always (99% of the cases) a user error. A typo in answer file, wrong CPI source (last line in the answer file), invalid install media, wrong drive letters and so on. In this case you can restore the image you created and try again, and ask for help by posting the copy of your answer file here. Often the answer file itself can reveal the cause for the failing sysprep and your next try might be successful when the errors have been fixed

    If you are doing this on an existing Windows installation (Method Two in this tutorial), creating a system image before proceeding is even more important. A failed sysprep, for any reason, can make your system unusable.

    Windows 10, upgrade install:

    Before starting the upgrade process create a system image as told above.


    Be it a clean install or an upgrade install, when you have created the system image continue from below.
    That note simply tells users to create a system image at this point. It is not obligatory, you don't have to do it, but if something goes wrong a system image allows you to restore your Windows as it was at the moment of creating a system image.

    In that note I refer to a backup application called Macrium Reflect. In this tutorial you can see how to create a system image using Macrium Reflect: Macrium Reflect - Backup & Restore

    Short: the recommendation in tutorial in question only asks you to create a backup in case something goes wrong. No (using your words) "another Windows 10 system" will be created.

    Hello,Kari.Nice to meet you.

    Yeah,then where is the system image that has been created?
    Is is on the boot disk or the machine disk?I really can't catch it.

    I usually used boot disk to boot a badly crash system.

    When you install Macrium backup and imaging software it prompts you to create a boot media, in Macrium's case it's called Rescue Media. You can burn it to a CD, DVD or USB flash drive:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	image.png 
Views:	48 
Size:	26.0 KB 
ID:	117492

    This media can then be used to boot PC to either create a system backup image, or restore a previously created image. When creating system image you can save it on any location you want to (except a partition from which you are making an image).

    Read the Macrium tutorial for more information: Macrium Reflect - Backup & Restore

    Umm,does it make sense to keep the version of boot disk consistent with the version of system installed on machine?

    The version of boot disk made by MR should be consistent with MR version.

    Finally,I completed it with only scare.Thank you again.

    I really don't know the meaning of inserting boot disk up to now.

    "Inserting boot disk" hail from long time ago when OS was actually on a disk(ette) and worked all from there. Improvement fro "Insert tape in the player and push Play button". Lol. Loooooong time ago.
    In other words, that Boot disk/USB Macrium Reflect makes has OS on it and runs from it along with programs installed on it. It's like specialized, portable windows.
